Specific COVID-19 safety protocols and other related 2021 tournament policies will be reviewed with gaming regulators in the lead-up to the event. The World Series of Poker will be compliant with all directives from the state of Nevada regarding social distancing and capacity limits on the tournament dates.
WSOP Executive Director Ty Stewart said, "This year, more than ever, we embrace our role at the WSOP to deliver memorable experiences and bring this community of poker lovers back together. In 2021, the theme is, get vaccinated and get back to Vegas."
Many of the poker professionals want this tournament, even those who play cash on the internet such as limitles, truetteler, linus, among others, they said that they earn more playing on the internet but they come to this tournament for the prestigious trophy that the winner gets and that's why everyone wants to play it.
Depending on the levels you can play, you can take advantage of your time, some see 50 dollars as if it were enough, that is due to the level they play, it may seem quite a lot, but for others who play at high levels it could not be, that every one will judge his game.
I'm curious this time abiut the restrictions which will be on distance between players at the poker tables. I don't know if they will wear masks, but it is very hot there and i hope this idea will be removed. It is time for things to return at normal.
It is a mistake that can happen to anyone, we should not judge for that, we also know that this tournament is in doubt to be carried out would be something very out of the question that they can do it, but we all want that to the delight of the eyes, those who we love poker.
sorry friend DULE-VU I have made a mistake, I recognize it, sometimes when I try to translate into English there I copy wrong, but surely I have not done it on purpose but I thought it was fine, well I will try to improve that part.
let's go back to the WSOP and listen to what the professionals will say then. We have a few more months in which we can try online qualifications. Whoever wants this thing can do it with little money, because you have the chance to get in Las Vegas and have a dining experience with formidable players.
in a few weeks the games of this famous world series of poker will start. This is also beneficial for us, if we follow their strategies carefully. I don't understand why more big poker rooms don't make online satellites for players to qualify for US tournaments.
I don't see any news in brm, about qualifying tournaments or in the poker rooms where i play. There are probably satellites in pokerstars and party poker. Anyone who wants to visit Las Vegas and has no problems with covid 19, tests or vaccines, can always try to get in a live game, or more.
I wonder how many are the participants on this WSOP , during to COVID restrictions , and how many players are willing to travel to USA to lay on this seeries . Are the prizepools big enough , how much in comparison to previous years . I think an article for this would be intersting
as I see on their page,everything already started on 30.9.,ofcourse with smaller events and there was more then 20 tournaments so far!most of players are from usa,but I can see on list players from other countries,so they allow to all,its just question how many of them will travel or maybe some of them live there!
I read an article that main event in WSOP will have a big prise for 1st place , maybe even 8 millions $$$ , depending on how many entrants it will finally have , less than the 2019 10 M , but still big . I think it's overestimated , maybe next post-COVID year , 2022 , it will be so or even better like it used to be .
Phil Helmuth did it again , in a 7stud game (I think it was) . He started cursing a player , who finally won the bracelet , that is not a way to win one more bracelet , if he is so anxious for his next bracelet , he should focus on the gameplay , leave everything else aside . I read the news , didn't like what he did .
till main event is lot of days,more then two weeks,exactly on 4.11.,so player have time to decide will they travel in usa or not,but ofcourse they need to have both vaccines,because in lot of states they dont allow that somebody come in hall or this kind of places,like basketball players cant,so there are lot of things to think and not just to pay buy in of 10000 $!

8 million for the first one is a huge prize even if it is less than last year. But as you say, the years to come, the awards will surely be better. These times are marked by the Covid pandemic. But once that is in the past, I think the WSOP will start to get more participation. The boom that happened online, I suppose it will carry over to the game in real life.
I can imagine what will happen when he will come on bigger tournaments,with bigger prize pool and what he will do to other players!seems that live poker missed to lot of players,especially to this pro players like him!
Soon main event will start and too bad that doyle will not be part of it!he is too old for this long tournaments,especially to play for days!this will be his last wsop,but ofcourse on smaller tournaments,like few days ago!
In a couple of weeks we will have the main event and it will be very good to follow it on a channel, twitch or some streaming. I prefer to see it with a comment in Spanish, but if that is not possible, I will settle for English. without a doubt it will be a different tournament. I don't know if phil ivey will participate in this case. supposedly he was interested, but for some personal problem he was not playing the wsop
